Top Chiropractor Shares 5 Warning Signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Archdale, North Carolina

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes joint pain. However, RA isn’t just found in older individuals. This condition can affect people from the time they’re teenagers – some don’t even know it. It’s a good idea to work with a physician and a chiropractor to address pain relief. Here, Stroud Chiropractic Clinic in Archdale, NC, shares some RA warning signs you should watch for:

1. Pain During Movement

chiropractorWhen you lift the groceries or climb stairs, do your joints hurt? The knees, elbows, ankles, and wrists are common places to have rheumatoid arthritis, and consistent pain as you move might indicate that you have the disease. Seek the help of a chiropractor for pain relief.

2. Stiffness After Waking Up

People assume being stiff when they get out of bed is a normal part of aging. However, this feeling should go away when you begin your day. If it doesn’t, you might have RA.

3. Swelling in Your Joints

Swelling and inflammation is another common symptom. You might notice the knuckles on your fingers or toes are red and puffy for weeks at a time without exposure to trauma. 

4. Incapacitating Sudden Joint Pain

During a rheumatoid arthritis flare-up, you may find that one or two joints, from your toes to your fingertips, are suddenly in excruciating pain. The area may also swell and hurt to the touch.

5. Flu-like Symptoms

While pain is associated with RA, so are flu symptoms like a fever or fatigue. If you often feel like you’re coming on with something and have joint pain, you should see your doctor.

 

If you have rheumatoid arthritis, you’re likely looking for ways to ease the aches. Many people find chiropractic care helps to reduce pain, build strength, and improve flexibility, especially those patients with RA.
